    My engine died months ago after getting water into the magneto housing. Turned out the water fried the magneto, CDI, and the plug.

    After replacing all three components, the engine starts just fine...but it runs backwards. I cannot for the life of me explain how this happened. Any idea how to fix it?

    EDIT: Fixed the problem. I installed the new magneto the wrong direction. (backwards, upside down). For anyone with the problem this is your fix...
